Jan Jamison wasn’t keen on the idea at first.
Which is to be expected when a son talks about painting ads on his own urn.
Last year Jan’s son Aaron Jamison, battling a terminal colon cancer that has spread to his liver and lymph nodes, first brought up the idea. With a new round of chemotherapy, doctors have given him nine months to live. No more chemo will shorten that to three months.
Aaron, living on disability since last summer, didn’t want to add another financial burden to wife Kristin. So the former graphic artist came up with a unique idea: selling sponsorship on two urns. He’s selling ads for $100 each, and hopes to hand paint eight ads on each of two urns – one for his wife and the other for his parents.
